Dragon Quest Builders touts a “family-friendly” gameplay experience. However, while rebuilding Alefgard, players may uncover a romantic scenario that might have its naughty moments. According to the ESRB, there is some text in the English language version of the game that appears to suggest two characters may have the option to share some “special time” alone together after dark.
The full ratings summary, as provided by the ESRB, is as follows:
This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of a hero who must rebuild the world using the power of creation. Players traverse environments, gather and combine raw materials, build structures, and engage in combat against attacking monsters (e.g., skeletons, golems, dragons). Players use swords, hammers, and bombs to defeat enemies; most attacks cause enemies to burst/fall apart on the battlefield before disappearing. One enemy creature (“bloody hand”) is depicted as a hand covered in red slime. The game also contains some suggestive text/dialogue (e.g., “Scandalous Swimsuit: Racy red swimwear for those who like to show some skin” and “When night falls, do the two of you retire to the same room to spend some special time together.”). During the course of the game, players can acquire or craft a “beer barrel” item. The words “damn” and “hell” appear in text/dialogue.
Fans can find out how this situation plays out when Dragon Quest Builders launches on October 11, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
